Could you use some self-care? Self-care is important for your mental health, your stress level, your recovery and your overall well-being. Here are 10 self-care quotes to give you some inspiration when the going gets tough.
One of my goals in life is to share with women that self-care is crucial to their well-being. And not only that it’s crucial, but that it’s OK to take care of you. It’s OK to focus on you. And it’s OK to love on yourself, a little or a lot.
My husband and I both love to surround ourselves and our home with positivity. One way we do that is by having reminders all around our home. From wall hangings to print outs, you’ll see them everywhere. One day I’ll take you on a little tour of our home and show you, but until then I created these 10 self-care quotes graphics for you.
Print them out. Save them as your computer or phone wall paper. Share them with a friend. Do whatever you want with them. Just promise me one thing…please take to heart what the words say. Read the words and soak it in. And when you’re having a bad day and you’re down on yourself or overwhelmed, take a minute to read these. Take a minute to remember that you, my friend, are worth self-care.
